I have a Poweredge 2600 server with a PERC4/DI RAID controller. I am currently running 3 Fujitsu 73gb 10k RPM drives. I would like to add 2 more drives, 1 as a hotswap, and 1 for extra space.
My question is this, is is ok to mix 15K drives with 10k drives? I found a better deal on the 15k drives with a better warranty vs. the 10k drives. Here are the links.
I have heard that the 15k drives will only run at 10k but otherwise there is nothing wrong with this. I have also heard that when the 15k drives come down to 10k it can cause issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
